Splurge vs. Save + J.Crew Giveaway!

Today I am excited to share with you my participation in Credit Card Insider’s Challenge “Splurge vs. Save” campaign!

Who says you need to spend a fortune on a fabulously chic outfit? Between bills, student loans, and a desire for travel expeditions, who has the money to spend on clothes like there’s no tomorrow? I certainly don’t. I’ve been in love with Olivia Wilde’s style for awhile now and I thought she’d be the perfect “Splurge vs. Save” inspiration.

  1. DON’T LET MY COMMENT THROUGH. I was trying to enter the giveaway and it said leave a comment so I did AND THEN I CLICKED ON THE DARN BUTTON and it said ABOUT YOUR OUTFIT. It’s decieving.

  2. This dress is absolutely gorgeous! I would NEVER have guessed you only paid $15 for it – another reason I love thrift shopping and consignment stores like Crossroads! Great post! 🙂
